stem cell

Recent advances in stem cell therapy now allow us to regrow and regenerate damaged tissue like never before. Milestone developments in this exciting field can be attributed to aggressive research projects taking place all over the world. In fact, there are over 1,000 clinical studies currently underway involving stem cell therapy in the United States, Europe and Japan.

Stem cell therapy introduces new stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Stem cells have the ability to turn into cartilage, bone, nerve tissue, ligament, tendon, blood vessels, or muscle tissue. First, they precisely bind onto the cell’s DNA. Next, they accurately interpret the cell’s genetic code. This code prompts the cells to grow into exactly the same healthy tissue you would have had before the damage or injury.

Stem cells are found in various tissues and organs, including adult bone marrow and fat. These specialized cells have an unparalleled ability to locate and repair damaged tissue.  However, in people with degenerative disease or injury, the stem cells are not released quickly enough to fully repair the damage. Through extracting, concentrating and directly administering these stem cells, doctors are now able to offer immediate pain relief while avoiding debilitating surgery.
